Steinberg has announced that the MR816 CSX
and MR816 X
Integration DSP Studios and the CC121
Controller are now shipping to Steinberg resellers worldwide.
Designed by Steinberg and Yamaha and manufactured by Yamaha in
Japan, the new hardware units are the result of the ongoing
technological cooperation between the software and hardware experts
at both companies.
â€œThe shipping of MR816 CSX, MR816 X and CC121 is a landmark
event for Steinberg,â€� comments Stefan Schreiber, Steinbergâ€™s
Marketing Manager for Hardware. â€œUtilizing new integrative
technologies, these new products combine with Cubase to form an
extremely powerful production environment with peerless integration
between hardware and software, one that offers not only myriad
workflow advantages but also outstanding sonic characteristics,â€�
MR816 CSX and MR816 X Advanced Integration DSP Studios are two
first-class 16-channel FireWire interfaces that integrate directly into
Cubase at core level. Among the features available with Cubase are
True Integrated Monitoringâ„¢, Quick Connect, full user interface
integration into Cubase as well as the accessibility of DSP capability in
Cubase as a VST3 plug-in. But the integration with and 1:1 functional
mirroring of the hardware with Cubase are not the only stand-out
characteristic of these two new units.
â€œThe eight D-Pre microphone
preamps have been designed to offer outstanding sonic
characteristics,â€� Schreiber explains, â€œwhile the quality of the REV-X
reverb on both units and the unique EQ and compression tools offered
by the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip plug-ins on the MR816
CSX further underline the exceptional quality of this system. And while
MR816 CSX and MR816 X are the ideal I/O for any Cubase owner,
the included ASIO and CoreAudio drivers offer compatibility with any
DAW supporting these two standards,â€� Schreiber adds.
CC121 Advanced Integration Controller is a made-for-Cubase
precision controller featuring a combination of dedicated controls for
Cubase functions with the ultra-flexible AI Knob. â€œThis one-of-a-kind
combination keeps the musician or producer absolutely focused on
their project,â€� Schreiber continues. â€œThe advanced ergonomics
harness the speed of the mouse as a pointing device, while dedicated
controls for Cubase mean that direct access to Cubase functionality
quickly becomes second nature. The combination of these two
approaches in one first class controller means a workflow in Cubase
thatâ€™s as fluid and intuitive as it is efficient. This is designed to feel like
the hardware extension of the Cubase software,â€� Schreiber adds.
